I have a TT030 and not been using it for long.
I also used to love Civilisation on the ST, yet CIV won't seem to run in TT.
I know that disabling cache can make a difference, and also clean boot and low res (try alt and 1 on keyboard). Im also running ICD currently, but plan to switch to HDRIVER.
Listen, can we start a list of TT compatcable games on this forum, if there is not one already.
Ive not tried loads as my main focus is MIDI, but the following work really well.
Frontier Elite II (better framerate!!)
Lemmings 2 (great game btw)
All Infocom games, (e.g. Zork, etc. All rez)
Is there a list anywhere to add to, and with hints or settings. If not we ought to start one. I'd like to see F1GP running on the TT. Frontier runs great, and really is an improvement.
I have tried with both HD-drivers on my TT and change cache but it still won't run!
Let's join forces bid! I'll start a TT game compatibility list topic where all TT users can unite and help each other!
Didn't know about ALT+1 method, does it work for all resolutions, ALT +1-6? Maybe I should read my TT manual
Are those games you listed dbug/others hd patches or originals?

But saying that. Modifying Civ is pretty easy. I am no programmer, but I actually modded my 5 civilisation games disks when I last used it ... almost 15 years ago!?!
Lol. My STe had 4MB ram, as I added some old PC ram to it, yet I had no hard drive and hated disk swapping all the time. So I edited the files, and disks, so as to fit into ram, and also took out or changed some pictures I believe. Everything was separate files! So I used some tools, and a programme called MDisk to create a 2.5MB ram disk to store the new version in memory. Then I could play Civ for several veeeeerrryy looooonngg hours (possibly 20 hours straight) at a time, and its was so beautiful a system and game!! Really great.
I hated the full screen, non windowed environment though. Always wish it was more Gem like. I like Sim City and I like having my accessories, and being able to swich programs or do other things. Really, if I were so inclined I would wonder, is it possible to place games in some kind of Gem wrapper in TT Medium? Obviously ones that are not graphics hungry, or using crazy programming tricks. I have seen it done with Elite http://gemcandy.atari-users.net/index.php?name=Downloads&req=viewdownloaddetails&lid=175 but Civilisation in a TT window under Magic or Mint would be .... well mint!!!

But, I'll have to put my CF Card drive back into my Windows PC to get the installer files. Is there any chance I can swap it for instructions how to build a VME IDE interface that is rumored to exist??? Call it fair swaps??

I am still in the mood for instructions on how to build a VME IDE drive. I had heard that someone had built one already? I dont mind making up the board myself if such a thing exists?? I just heard rumour that someone had made one already?
